NY Daily News: “Could Sarah Palin replace Michael Steele as Republican National Committee chairman? Not likely”

The New York Daily News doesn’t think RNC Chair is a good fit for Sarah:

But the reality is this kind of Palin speculation is just fantasy.

“Being RNC chair would put Sarah a step behind in the footrace to beat Glenn Beck at the multimedia money-grubbing grifter game, and I have a feeling she would feel limited in a role as a boring party chairman,” [Joy]Reid writes.

Would Sarah earn less as Chair of the RNC? Only in dollars. On the other hand, she would earn piles and piles of political capital beyond her wildest imagination.

When Racist Progressives Look At Chairman Steele, All They See Is His Skin

Is it just that Progressive-Democrats, having never cut one of their own loose no matter how disgusting or illegal the behavior, cannot fathom why, if not for racism, there would even be a discussion about replacing Michael Steele as Chairman of the RNC? Or are Progressive Democrats just opportunistic racists themselves?

From the ultra-Progressive FireDogLake:

Went out for the evening to see some smutpuppets tear down all that is good about America and I come home to find that Jim Hoft is a lot smarter than his special-needs-easy-to-manage hairstyle look would lead you to believe.

Jim is going to save the Republicans by getting conservative people to sign a petition full of CAPITALIZED wheras’s and therefore’s and other official sounding words, demanding that the Republicans get rid of Jim Hoft’s second least favorite negro and replace him that nice snowbilly white lady.

The more these Progressive bigots hate the idea of a Chairwoman Palin, the more attractive the idea becomes.

NRO: Dump Steele, Hire Palin

On July 3rd NRO’s Kevin Williamson wrote the following:

An Idea for the RNC: Dump Steele, Hire Palin   [Kevin D. Williamson]

Re: Steele and the RNC: Allow me to chime in with my usual observation on this subject: This is a job for Sarah Palin. Palin would be a much better RNC chairman than presidential candidate or freelance kingmaker. She’d raise tons of money and help recruit good candidates, i.e., she’d excel at doing the things Steele should have been doing instead of appointing himself Republican pundit-at-large.

A Chairman Palin would help set the right tone for the Republican party without having to get herself entangled in the minutiae of policy-development, which has not been her forte. Sure, she’d be polarizing, but so is Barack Obama, and these are polarized times. And it’s one thing to have a polarizing party chairman, another to have a polarizing candidate.

Anybody disagree?

At least one person disagrees:

I disagree. Here’s why. Even if you like Palin — especially if you like Palin — it should be evident that the Power of Sarah is dampened, not amplified, by the obligations of office. Public office, party office, no matter: here is a woman whose ability to influence public opinion, command fundraising, and electrify Republican politics depends almost entirely on her ability to choose independently when, how, and indeed whether to speak and act. The speeches and deeds that are the province of party chairpersons are inimical to Palin’s style and substance.

The position of RNC Chair demands a disposition and an education that Sarah Palin does not possess and does not wish to learn. This is fine — few children will ever want to be Ken Mehlman when they grow up. There is a lot to hate about life as a party chair, and the job will go down in history as a gig that only the Macker could love. But the brute reality is clear: the next RNC Chair must perform, on command and on television, the full spectrum of on-message tricks, not just ringing platitudes but, turning on a dime, an encyclopedic host of policy details. The next RNC Chair must reek of competence the way Bill Clinton reeks of confidence.

To this we simply offer the following video reminder of the man who unexpectedly helped lead the Democrat Party from the brink of destruction to dominant control of 2/3 of  the Federal Government.

Contrast Howard Dean’s scream with Sarah Palin’s performance at the Republican Convention.

Yes, the position of Party Chair is, in some ways, a demotion from Wealthy-Book Touring-Former Governor. It is not credible, however, to suggest that Howard Dean was competent enough to lead the Democrats from the wilderness, yet Sarah Palin is not.

Gawker Media Examines Possibility Of Naming Sarah Palin Chair Of The RNC

Gawker Media doesn’t think Republicans will name Sarah Palin as Chair of the RNC:

This would not be good! Only 37% of American look at her favorably, and the rest *hate* her. The Democrats would love, love, love to exploit “Sarah Palin as official head of the Republican party” to jack up their own donations, far beyond those of the RNC.And why would she abandon her lucrative multimedia career in the flourishing misinformation industry?

But one of Gawker’s wiser readers makes the following accurate observation:

I think this could happen.

It’s sort of a mirror imaging of having Howard Dean become the chair of the Democratic party.

When Dean was appointed chair for the Dems, ot was foisted as one of the last nails in the coffin for the impending death of liberalism and the democratic party. The foaming-mouths that run right-wing talk radio were beside themselves with glee over his appointment and felt it meant Republicans winning every election over the next 20 years. And hows has that worked out?

She is perfect for them. They love her. She speaks their language and could seriously galvanize them.

You betcha!

Michael Steele Flashback: “Steele Doesn’t Know If GOP Ready To Lead”

Back in January of this year, Michael Steele drew criticism when he stated (paraphrasing) that he didn’t know if the GOP was ready to lead.

Asked if GOPers will take back the House, Steele confessed: “Not this year.”

As Gateway Pundit pointed out at the time:

The democrats just passed a bill to take over one-sixth of the US economy and Michael Steele is slamming Republicans?

The Official Petition To Draft Sarah Palin For RNC Chair

WHEREAS the current Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele, has woefully and repeatedly misstepped in his capacity as party Chair, failing to provide the leadership and vision necessary to battle the Progressive Socialist Left’s agenda, and

WHEREAS he has also failed to cultivate and facilitate emerging Conservative candidates who are able to convincingly argue that Liberty is superior to dependence upon the State Apparatus, and

WHEREAS Sarah Palin, by way of radical contrast, consistently and enthusiastically argues on behalf of Liberty, Free Enterprise, Individualism, and a small and Constitutionally limited Federal Government, and

WHEREAS she has also demonstrated an innate affinity with the great majority of Liberty-Loving Americans, a capacity to inspire them to action, and a willingness to act as a National Leader on important Conservative Issues,

THEREFORE, We, the undersigned, submit that Sarah Palin, as soon as is practicably possible, ought to replace Michael Steele and take over the reins as Chair of the Republican National Committee.
